Fragile Veneer -

Tomorrow is being commemorated as the anniversary of the Trayvon Martin Shooting in Sanford FL, where life will never be same again.

The town has sacked its white police chief and hired an African American for the job. And a native of Sanford is working at the law firm which has produced the state's
Star Witness #8 in the criminal prosecution of the accused shooter, George Zimmerman.

The town of Sanford, it has emerged, is actually two towns combined. The other town called Goldsboro was a historically black town which was absorbed by Sanford. Some black residents still harbor resentments about it, feeling that the merger stripped them of their identity and history.

This resentment roils just under the surface there, where the racial fissures that divide the two towns were papered over for cosmetic appearance and prospective prosperity. In retrospect, that merger may have been a mistake, because it left many black residents feeling robbed.

The story was originally introduced into the Mainstream Media by a well-connected Press Agent, after which it was ruthlessly exploited by the Press which has largely replaced accurate reportage about it with worthless or incendiary propaganda.
